KNIGHT’S CROSS HOLDERS OF THE SS AND GERMAN POLICE 1940-45. VOLUME 1: MIERVALDIS ADAMSONS – GEORG HURDELBRINK

£29.95 £3.00

A thoroughly researched and meticulously organised volume, the first in a series the author Michael D Miller is a disciplined and seasoned historian. Up until now there has not been many works in English that dealt solely with the Knight’s Cross winners of the SS and Polizei. Of course Mark Yerger’s excellent series on German Cross in Gold winners of the SS does cover quite a lot of Knight’s Cross winners, however it’s main focus is on German Cross winners, as well as unit structure, history and organization. This is the most detailed work that has ever been released in English. It is written in capsule biography style, with information on everything from their SS and Party numbers, to all of their promotions, but primarily all of the awards and decorations each individual received. In this later aspect this series goes far beyond anything thus produced on this subject. The research done includes numerous primary sources and archival material. Finally the multitude of photographs are astounding! Many rare and never before released photos of the Knight’s Cross winners accompany the text. All of them with excellent captions. This book is without a doubt a necessary buy for anyone interested in this subject.
